Where I live there is absolutely no issue getting a gray Canon item repaired at the authorized repair facility. It's business for their workshop.
A potential irritation with gray is if a warranty claim kicks in. You may have to jump through hoops to get the job done through your gray seller.
Well, just on a 350D with 18-55 so far. Only starting to get into photography for real, but really want something I can grow with. Haven't upgraded for 6 years or so, about time I reckon
Is the 24-105mm kit lens any use? Seems very good valueyes this lens is also excellent value for money i have it too, you just may find it not quite wide enough compared to the 16-35 (really depends how wide you like to go for your landscapes. You also have to consider the 5D3 will cost more than current 5D2 prices and will have a hell of a wait due to demand for it. If you can get a good deal on the 5D2 kit with the 24-105 you will be happy with it. the other benefit of just going with the kit for now is if you decide you really need to go wider later you could look at a dedicated ultrawide prime these get expensive though. what focal lengths do you shoot with on what body at the moment?
i sent you a PM
Oops, sent your adapter to a different Island. No, all is well and your address is correct on the shipment.
I have ruled out taking the 100-400 as it is too soft.
May be I'm quite biased about the 100-400, since it is a lens I adore. I'm afraid you get a bad example of it and that is a shame, since, I know that for personal experience in photosafari in SA, the 100-400 has the perfect zoom range for the business. By the way, what do you mean by 'soft'? Is the following image (100-400 at 300) soft for you? (Unfortunately I had to resize it to allow uploading it, loosing a lot of IQ)
P.S. I think the following article could be very useful.
I'm very well aware that the 100-400's are not all created equal. There are good ones out there and there are bad ones. I agree the focal length is awesome for a safari. But what made me stop using MY 100-400 altogether is when I tried to micro adjust it, the output was too soft that I wasn't even able to find the sharpest point. I do own the 70-300L also but I opted for the 70-200 f/2.8L II along with the 300mm f/2.8L II instead because I can put converters on both of these lenses, their faster and sharper.
As for TexPhoto's idea of zooming with feet, I'm just crazy enough to do that but I want to be able to shoot again the next day not being the days kill. I love a wide angle, I like getting right into my subjects face but they won't let me in Africa for some reason.
